2017 Elections for Faculty Senate

and

University Committee on Tenure and Privileges

 

The Faculty Senate Elections Committee is inviting nominations for candidates for the University of Rochester Faculty Senate, and for the University Committee on Tenure and Privilege (UCTP). Elections are scheduled to take place this spring. At stake are 15 (out of 45) seats in the Faculty Senate, one seat on the UCTP in the School of Arts, Sciences and Engineering, one seat in the Warner School of Education, and one seat in the Simon School of Business.

Nominations are due by 5:00PM, Monday, March 20, 2017.  Please use separate forms or emails if you want to make multiple nominations.

FACULTY SENATE
The electorate for the Faculty Senate election consists of all full-time members of the faculty (Assistant Professors, Associate Professors and Professors), and of part-time members of the faculty with the rank of Associate Professor, Professor, or the equivalent. 

Senators who have served two consecutive three-year terms are ineligible for election in the year in which they complete their second term. Faculty Senate elections are “at large” elections:  any member of the faculty can nominate any faculty member and vote for any candidate, regardless of their respective schools.

Nominations for the Faculty Senate can be done in the following two ways:

(1) Send an email with the name of the candidate and the names of three members of the Faculty Senate electorate (the nominators) to the Faculty Senate Administrator (FacultySenate@ur.rochester.edu). IMPORTANT: Please copy all three nominators on the email. 

OR

(2) Print the form below and send it with the name of the nominee and signatures of three members of the Faculty Senate electorate by intramural mail to the Faculty Senate Office, RC Box 270014.

UNIVERSITY COMMITTEE ON TENURE AND PRIVILEGE (UCTP)
Eligible for election to the UCTP are full-time members of the faculty with unlimited tenure. The UCTP has nine members: two from Arts, Sciences and Engineering, two from the School of Medicine and Dentistry, and one each from the Eastman School of Music, the School of Nursing, the Simon Business School and the Warner School of Education. The ninth member is appointed by the Faculty Senate Executive Committee. Members ordinarily serve three-year terms, starting on July 1. There are no term limits.  This year the schools with elections are the School of Arts, Sciences and Engineering, the Warner School of Education, and the Simon School of Business. UCTP elections are “district based”: you can only nominate candidates from your own school for your own school’s available seat, and you can only vote in the election for your school’s seat on the UCTP.

Nominations for the UCTP can be done in the following two ways:

(1) Send an email with the name of the candidate and the names of three members of the Faculty Senate electorate (the nominators) to the Faculty Senate Administrator (FacultySenate@ur.rochester.edu). IMPORTANT: Please copy all three nominators on the email.

OR

(2) Print the form below and send it with the name of the nominee and signatures of three members of the Faculty Senate electorate. The signatures must be from members of the Faculty Senate electorate with primary appointment in the same school as the nominee. Send the form by intramural mail to the Faculty Senate Office, RC Box 270014.
